Stopping off at The Rodney is almost like stepping back in time. With a cosy bar, a pool room and a spacious garden there’s just what you need for a friendly pint or an hour or two socialising summer and winter.

The pub’s name, The Rodney originates from Admiral Rodney and, subsequently, a Royal Navy ship – one of a succession of vessels bearing that name – and the decor reflects the nautical theme with pictures, models and brassware. There’s also evidence of the pub’s own history too – and it’s barely changed externally over the years. “It’s a Grade 2 listed building now and the area is a conservation area, 

The Rodney doesn’t have a restaurant, but does offer traditional home cooked food – with the occasional exotic Thai curry. As far as possible everything is freshly prepared and cooked, andalthough we don't priduce a childrens menu smaller portions are available

With plenty of local attractions and a sunny beer garden, Enjoy a cosy drink on a winter’s evening with the regulars and they will make you feel right at home too.
